of friction, be it taiwan or the south china sea. the question is, i suggest that we need to draw lines with china, but we cannot draw them everywhere. we have to be very carefuln how we draw those lines. the question i have, would you suggest or support drawing the line at china's assertion of sovereignty over the south cna sea? this does raise all the questions that you mentioned in terms of indonesia, malaysia, and also the philippines and others in the region. and most ironically, vietnam, asking for thenited states to play a role in helping to so i would ask you, is this an area you would recommend we draw the line with china and how would you draw it?
